Implementation of artificial intelligence tool will improve mammography quality and advance breast healthcare

February 9, 2023 — Onsite Women’s Health, a leading national provider of breast health services, announces partnership with Volpara Health to adopt Volpara Analytics, an artificial intelligence (AI) software tool that improves mammography quality by assessing every mammogram image for appropriate positioning, compression and radiation dose. This partnership will be implemented in phases, deploying to all Onsite locations nationally this year. 

“Onsite’s overarching goal is to consistently provide the best mammography quality, patient experience and to detect breast cancers at the earliest stage possible. We are committed to cutting edge investments that improve breast health care,” says Brian Marger, chief executive officer, Onsite Women’s Health. “We appreciate Volpara’s commitment to quality as we embark on achieving new levels of breast care with their AI tools.” 

Mammography quality is critical for the early detection of cancer. If a breast is not positioned properly – cancer can be missed. With their advanced image analysis technology and common quality measures applied across the organization, Volpara will provide mammography technologists feedback for each exam and identifiy areas of high performance and areas needing improvement. 

“Onsite’s progressive approach to mammography services challenges the status quo like Volpara’s software. The convenience of having a mammogram done in the primary care or OBGYN office during an annual exam shows an understanding of the busy lives of women,” says Teri Thomas, chief executive officer, Volpara Health. “Women want confidence that they are not sacrificing quality for access, and it is fantastic they receive personalized care with help from our solutions. We are delighted to partner with Onsite to deliver a world class experience and save more families from cancer.” 

“We know mammography quality is critical for the early detection of cancer, our number one priority,” says Susan Holley, MD, PhD, clinical Director of research and development, Onsite Women’s Health.  “Improper positioning can leave tissue out and removes the opportunity to see a cancer. Volpara Analytics software will help us improve and sustain quality through consistent, fair and unbiased assessment of positioning and overall mammography quality.”
